Chief Sunny Onuesoke, a chieftain of the Peoples Dem­ocratic Party (PDP) chieftain and former Delta State gover­norship aspirant, has appealed to Nigerians and the media to sustain the pressure on the members of the Senate, Federal Government and Independent National Electoral Commis­sion (INEC) on the merit of application of electoral trans­mission of voter’s result in 2023 polls.

Onuesoke’s appeal is com­ing on the heels of rejection of electronic transmission of vot­ers’ results by Senators elected under the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Reacting to the rejection while addressing journalists in Asaba, Delta State, he disclosed that with the rejection of elec­tronic transformation of votes, it is duty of vocal Nigerians and the media as the Fourth Es­tate that can rescue the helpless masses by crying out loudly to the world the oppression of the Senators against those who vot­ed them into office.

He alleged that the action of APC Senators was an assault on the sensibilities of Nigeri­ans, who looked up to the Sen­ate for improvement in our electoral process in a manner that would engender free, fair and credible process.

Onuesoke explained that the Senators claim that NCC had declared that only 43 per cent of the country was currently under effective telecommu­nications coverage is false as evidence abound that GSM phones are used in all the re­mote villages of Nigeria.
